You dont have to if you think its a crappy idea but it could be interesting to see just how disturbing you people are

so here is mine

'As I emerged into a twilight landscape, the night mists were already abroad, rising swiftly as they were from the fringes of the cemetery and slipping across its graves like cobwebs. In the West, a murder of crows made wing towards the failing sun, until, within that wooded horizon their black forms were lost amidst an ancient battalion of pines that stood vast and unmoving, the shadows beneath their boughs ancient and impenetrable. I stepped out of the small archway and on to cobbles. Ahead of me, a countless array of statues marked an arrow-straight path to a vast but distant portal, beyond which the flames of a nightmare realm beckoned; my first glimpse of the place I had travelled so far to find.
Yet, there was no one to guard it. There were only these statues, a rank of curious visions frozen in stone. What were they, I asked myself, the fallen victims to a quest such as mine? The sleeping guardians of this realm? Or were they merely visions of the nightmares that awaited me: a silent warning that I should turn back now?
Within five paces I had reached the first. I looked up...'



A young girl holds a flower in both hands presenting it forward as if it were a gift. The flower is withered and broken, her hands are bleeding from where the thorns have dug into her flesh. She seems unaware of the pain for she is smiling, innocent and carefree. Yet there is something subtle about her that haunts me more than the violent and gruesome images I expected to see, a look of immense dread in her dead eyes. I tear my gaze from hers unable to rid myself of the all consuming feeling of despair that her silent scream wove upon me. I steel myself for the torment that await and walk on, unaware of the horror that shadows her.
Cool. I think adding your own "what happened next" to accompany your sculpt could be a nice touch. Good to see that the intro is evocative.

Modeling from box is fanny. It is very fast way of sketching.
Two weeks ago I worked with box and I did this:
It took me about 4 hours.

Brilliant work Emeth!

Can I just point out, though, Emeth is merely displaying a piece that worked from a similar principle to this competition. He is not displaying an entry in it.

By the way, I just added the year that the original intro piece was supposed to be set in. Figured it may help. The idea behind this piece was that the statues would be somewhat classical in nature...

what exactly does that imply ?
can't I get references of real life cemetary statues ? or can I get inspiration from an already existing concept art ?

what's the crack with posting WIPs for this one? minimal? as many as? there's been a few early ones, so i'll throw my early one in there as well, as i'm not sure how long i'll be able to drop on it.
Never sculpted like this before, and am doing it kinda different to how Alex did, in that i've kinda just carved out of the front half of the box. my concept is to have the rest be like rock, so he's kinda immersed in the rock. Wanna try and get it like he's got a very thin tight layer of skin/something over him, hence the lines, stil working on that (obviously its all a bit early WIP)

I'm loving the challenge of this though, brilliant.
